Mama Kay Kay

Songs have an amazing way of expressing what we wish to say, but somehow fall short in spoken word…this song describes my mother perfectly, and if you have ever met her, I know you will agree.

Where you are Bebo Norman

Take another look at me, oh breaker of my heart.
Take a look and you will see how beautiful you are.
Cause even when I walk away, I cannot go very far
before the child in me would say, home is where you are.

In the tapestry of time, I cannot imagine where
I can find someone as kind on the ground or in the air.
‘Cause I have heard that angels fly and they never show their face,
So I suppose that from the sky, one landed in your place.

And did you know right from the start, when you first held me in your arms
That you would always hold my heart - where you are…

You make the mornings seem so light, with coffee in the air.
But to be a mother and a wife is a heavy load to bear.
And so you gave your life away, like the God inside your heart…
And even though we’ve gone away,

Home is where you are. … It’s where you are.
